It’s Lisa and today I’m sharing this colorful and fun layout with you.
Since this month’s challenge theme is WISHES, I wanted to stay in the theme and I chose to scrap a picture from my last birthday.
So, to start off this page, I chose an exclusive paper from the talented Irit Landgraf. It’s a watercolor background. I used a star stencil and put white stars all over the page.
While this was drying, I created my cute bunny. I always get inspiration on Pinterest and then I draw my pictures by hand. When I had my bunny, I cut out the different pieces, chose the papers for the different parts and cut out those pieces from the patterned papers.
I glued everything on a white sheet of paper and hand-stitched around the whole design.
Then I took the photo and matted it on different pieces of ephemera and tissue paper. I love doing this, to make the picture stand out more and give it a colorful frame.
To give the page a border, I machine-stitched around it but I found that the bottom of the layout was too empty and white. So I cut out cloud-like strips from two different pink papers. I also stitched over those and put them on the bottom.
Those “clouds” were the perfect base to put a ton of cute chipboard embellishments. I used some different collections and chose ice cream cones, cotton candy, a camera, a flamingo, candles...
I also used a chipboard banner to put on the top right corner.
For my title, I chose a cute quote from Pinterest: WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU BIRTHDAYS, EAT CAKE. 😊😄 so let that be a good advice for life...!
I finished the whole thing by adding some splatters of black ink a bit everywhere and I was done.
Hope you enjoyed this. If you want to see the whole process video for this, check it out on YouTube.
